Meghan Markle was reportedly on the hunt for a British beau long before meeting hubby, Prince Harry.
Markle’s old friend, English radio personality Lizzie Cundy, claims she attempted to set the 39-year-old former “Suits” actress up with UK soccer star Ashley Cole, back in 2013.
“Meghan said she loved London, and would love an English boyfriend, so I went through my phone to see who I knew that might be a good fit,” Cundy, 53, told Grazia.
“I tried to find her a boyfriend – Ashley Cole wasn’t so keen – but I did try to fix her up, which is funny looking back.”.
Despite Cole’s disinterest, Cundy admits that she can see why Harry would become smitten with the former television star, whom she met at a party in 2013.
“She was a real girl’s girl: full of energy,” Cundy said.
